Braemar October 2016

Hi Everyone,
I hope you enjoyed the sessions we had at Braemar this year - I know I had loads of fun with you all.  Hope to do it all again next time.
The worksheets for the various things we tried can be downloaded from the Resources page (no password).  They’ll be on the website for a couple of weeks, then I’ll take them down.
All the best,

Dublin August 16

Thanks to everyone who attended my sessions in Dublin. As usual a wonderful crowd of learners and great fun had by all.  I hope you all took away some inspiration and knowledge to help you to the next stage of your playing.  I had a ball and I’m forever grateful to Eileen and her team who made us feel so welcome.  I hope to see you all another time.

All the best, Finlay

Cromarty Ukulele School

Cromarty Last Hurrah

A fantastic turnout for the 3rd Ukulele School at Cromarty and we staggered off on Sunday, tired but happy, fingers trembling from a wild weekend of strumming. Thanks to everyone for a great time and here’s to next year!

Celtic Connections 2016

On the weekend of January 23/24 2016, for the 3rd year running I’ll be presenting the fantastic Celtic Connections Ukulele School!

Two full days of ukulele instruction covering strumming, playing in other keys, repertoire, chord voicings and performance skills.  If you’re past the first flush of learning and are comfortable with moving between the most familiar chords in the key of C then Ukulele School will elevate your playing to new heights.
Last year 100 players from all over Scotland (and beyond) strummed their fingers to the bone with sheer enthusiasm!
We ended with a flash mob singing magnificently on the stairs of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
